I'm going to pick up a 9n industrial probably next week. I'll get some photos of the brake conversion They had on them. I guess they didn't convert all of them because the farmers still needed the turning brakes for field work.

Kirk, what is the difference between a regular and industrial 9n?
Here are a couple of shots of an industrial. Although not my tractor, from the photo it's about the nicest one I've seen. They were basically used in warehouses and to shuttle stuff between factorys, pull wagons and the military used them. They had no hydraulics, the big bumper with frame and usually a big pintal hook on back, turf tires for the road and no left brake pedal, also the ones I have seen have always have wheel weights on the inside of the rear rim Adding about 400 lbs.

Yes, that's correct. There were rods that connected around where the left brake pawl is and then ran under the tractor to the right side so both brakes could be operated from the right brake pedal. You would see it in the photo because of the frame.

Picked up the 9n industrial with a friend. Here are some photos of the brake pedal. Some Industrials did not have this and the ford industrial kit did not show this. We believe it may have been a sherman option.
